Miso Lime Noodles

I made these for a side for July 4. Colorful and refreshing, though I wasn’t totally wowed (the miso clumps a bit). I did like how adaptable the recipe was.

Butter Tofu

Excellent meatless Monday meal (went great with naan, too). Would totally make this again. I think I slightly overdid the turmeric.

Dry Fried Eggplant

This is a dish we really love from Peter Chang. Our homemade version didn’t quite live up to the original (I missed the optional second fry step and made another error, so I’d try this again) but was a fun way to use up some eggplant.

Sambal Noodles

This recipe made it through my virtual cooking group. I would say we liked but didn’t love it (we did really like the noodles reheated in broth as “ramen” for leftovers) – I do think I should have rinsed my noodles a bit more before coating in sauce. I omitted the pork and topped with some fried tofu (didn’t realize until after the fact that there’s a veg adaptation with crumbled tofu), but I’ll include the original recipe here. Pictured with dry fried eggplant (recipe to follow).

Pizza Beans

This was a fun recipe to make (I was more into it than John), though we didn’t make it through all the leftovers.

Instant Pot Saffron Risotto

Really good, and quite easy. Mine came out a little runny, but now that I’m rereading the recipe, I think I used less rice than it called for, so try it once as written; you can always let it sit longer if it’s a little liquid-y. From one of my instant pot cookbooks, “Dinner in an Instant.”

Cacio e Pepe

I’ve always struggled with this dish. I would say this is one of the best versions of it that I’ve made, though it still had some clumping.

Dry Fried Cauliflower

Tried making this as a side dish. I mostly used this recipe, but added a few things (pinch of sugar, some ginger).

Egyptian Lentil Soup

Lentil soup isn’t something I’ve made often — decided to give this EatingWell recipe a try. Pretty simple, filling. John had seconds, so I’ll consider that an endorsement.

Beans with Cream

An interesting take on beans (I used a mix of heirloom ones). John wanted them to be a little more cooked than how they turned out, but I was happy with them.
